ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- A neighborhood on the West Side was placed on lockdown for several hours Monday morning after officers responded to a man who was allegedly threatening nearby residents with a gun before barricading himself in his house, Albuquerque Police say.
They finally took him into custody shortly before 8 a.m. Authorities have identified him as Gabriel Rodriguez, 26; he is facing charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon following the incident.
Court documents state Rodriguez was allegedly holding a woman hostage "by pointing the gun towards" her. He fleed into the residence around 2 a.m. when officers arrived.
